Another home made gift idea for Christmas this year. Lemon Honey (or Lemon Curd as it is sometimes known).
Picture to follow
LEMON HONEY2 large juicy lemons 50g Butter 1 Cup sugar 2 eggs beaten
Place rind and juice of the lemons in the top part of a double boiler with water simmering underneath. Add butter and sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add well beaten eggs and stir gently for 10-15 minutes until egg incorporated and mixutre thickens. Be careful not to boil mixture or egg will set in clumps/strands. Pour into jars and refrigerate. Use as an alternative to jam, and makes a good filling for cakes or deserts.
